GPS’ Top 5 EDM Tunes: May 2012
Well folks, it’s that time of the month again. May brought some serious tunes in my direction, and it was pretty tough to pick out the top 5 (as it always is since there is so much awesome music out there). Regardless, here are my picks for the month!
5. Strip Steve – Strollin’
Germany’s own Strip Steve brings us a groovy, relaxing tune that is downright delightful and pleasant on all levels. If the adjectives in that sentence didn’t sell you, just click play.
4. BS1 – By the Sea
I don’t know how to describe the awesomeness of this track. The sheer simplicity of it makes one interpret the feel of the song on many levels. The chill breakdown turns into a steady build leading to a very unexpected drop that just works.
This absolute monster of a remix comes from Rob De Large’s Anger EP. Yeah that EP has been referenced a million times in my posts already, deal with it. This tune goes super dark and hard enough to tickle anyone’s acidic techno fancy.
2. Sub Focus – Falling Down (XKore Remix)
Xkore has proven himself as a producer not to be taken lightly. The past year of releases has shot him into the forefront of the electronic music industry. This remix is his first release on Skrillex’s label OWSLA. With the right balance of melody and in-your-face hardness, this remix is enough to make you want to punch someone in excitement.

1. Andy’s iLL – Timeline
Timeline is what happens when you mix heavy metal influences with raunchy, thrashy electro. And there could have been no better person to pull it off than Andy’s iLL. The song takes you on a massive, energetic journey from start to finish with a nice, long build that seems to go on even after the destructive drop.
